Morrighan NicSidhe, AVP Default Administration
"UNC Charlotte's Belk College of Business engages Savannah's skills each semester as we train our graduate business students on proper business etiquette. She has been a partner with us for many years and we are so pleased at the education she provides. She takes students beyond just classroom learning into what is arguably as important or more for real world application."

Robin Boswell, Director of Graduate Student Career Development, UNC Charlotte | Belk College of Business
"Savannah, on behalf of the postdoctoral scholars and graduate students at UNC Chapel Hill, I'd like to say thank you for presenting such an in-depth Professional Presence Program. The rules of today's business etiquette can be confusing, overwhelming, and downright intimidating. However, you engaged participants in a way that made them feel comfortable enough to open up and ask questions. Because of that, I am certain they left feeling much more confident in their ability to interact with poise and diplomacy."

Dara Wilson-Grant, Associate Director, Department of Postdoctoral Studies, UNC Chapel Hill
"I greatly appreciate the workshop for our company recently. I had several team members call me immediately after the course telling me how much they appreciated it and how they learned so many things they had never felt comfortable asking."

Teresa S, Babcock & Brown International
"I have been a client of Savannah's for over six months now and find her to be a true asset to both my business and personal life, tackling all of my "improvables" with dedication and a smile. Besides being a joy to work with, Savannah is a highly intelligent, insightful person who understands people and is able to bring out their best. This has shown a tremendous return on my investment from a revenue as well as quality of life stand point. In addition, Savannah is also a very giving person. She has donated hours to my charity inspiring young business leaders through her Professional & Personal Presence training and coaching. In short, Savannah is a true partner."

David Watkins, House of Abbeydale
"Savannah was a breath of fresh air to our Administrative Team as she led our training program. She had a way of reminding us of the importance of the "little things" and how to incorporate those into your daily work.  It is rare to have a speaker who is able to hold your attention and also leave you challenged to incorporate what you learned. As a result of our time with Savannah, I have seen an immense change in the way our team connects with each other and others, which has been an invaluable boost to the way we provide service to our clients. The main question I continue to receive is "When can we have Savannah come back?"!"

Amy Henderson, Administrative Services Manager PricewaterhouseCoopers
"Savannah presents a program on professional presence to the students in our job readiness program. She teaches our clients everything from the proper order for introductions to how to handle business meals. From the moment she walks in the door our clients can sense her professionalism and know that they are in for quite a treat and learning experience. Many of our clients come from generational poverty and have had little to no exposure to business culture. Savannah and her associates are engaging and always have interactive activities planned for our group to experience. Each time they leave our offices the clients beg us to bring her back for another day; most say they never knew what they didn't know. We see simple but dramatic improvements in confidence as well as how clients interact, communicate, and make requests. In Savannah Shaw you will find an expert who is an observant, professional, and excellent facilitator."

Sheena Bossie, Program Coordinator, Jacob's Ladder Job Center
"I wanted to take a moment to say what a wonderful time I had in Charlotte attending The Art of the Modern Gentleman. Though I consider myself somewhat of a refined gentleman, it became obvious during the course of the evening that my manners, though adequate, could definitely be improved upon. I especially wanted to thank you again for a memorable time of great food, excellent wine and the professional way in which you both presented the event. Not only was it very informative, it was genuinely fun. I would highly recommend that anyone wanting to improve upon their social and business graces attend this when you offer it again.Thanks for a truly wonderful evening."
